Episcopal gay bishop/advocate bails out of own gay marriage

Stranger than fiction.

1st openly gay Episcopal bishop to divorce husband

NEW YORK (AP) — The first openly gay Episcopal bishop, who became a symbol for gay rights far beyond the church while deeply dividing the world’s Anglicans, plans to divorce his husband.

But it what his remarks that caught my attention:

“It is at least a small comfort to me, as a gay rights and marriage equality advocate, to know that like any marriage, gay and lesbian couples are subject to the same complications and hardships that afflict marriages between heterosexual couples,” Robinson wrote.

“All of us sincerely intend, when we take our wedding vows, to live up to the ideal of ’til death do us part. But not all of us are able to see this through until death indeed parts us.”

Robinson declined to comment further Sunday to The Associated Press. Robinson has never been fully accepted within the more than 70 million-member Anglican Communion, which is rooted in the Church of England and represented in the United States by the Episcopal Church. More

So its comforting to know the same fate applies to gay marriages? Only in this fallen world would that be considered comforting. It is a great symbol of equality when both end in divorce. That is a cause to celebrate.

I thought they were going to show us how it’s done and give us a lesson on “commitment”? Does that mean there could be a celebration commemorating the divorce? I wonder.

On second thought, now I’m confused whether to send sympathies or congratulations.

    I’m not sure who they’re trying to convince that homos and hetros are the exact same…us or them. At least for me; there are many black and white differences, but one thing that isn’t different is if they can get hitched then they can get divorced. I’m so pleased Robinson finds comfort in failure. Jeez…really??

    Now they can have a coming out homo divorce party to further their cause. They can also blame Bush for the divorce, if they want. Works for Barry on everything else…

    Maybe the only absolute equality is when everyone is a complete failure – our DICKtater is showing us the way.

    Now, is he saying he found another ‘love’? Or maybe his husband/wife/whatever found another love.
    This is common in the homosexual community. Most like to be lose and fancy free, from what I’ve read.

    Wonder how his church feels about this.
    Was this worth splitting up the church?
    Of course the true believers who do not accept gay marriage are in a church, now, that Christ approves, I am sure.
    The other…well, let’s just say there will be judgment.

      Excellent, I think there is a lot to that “common” theory. The movement and agenda is all about pride and self so it would only be natural.(to borrow a word)

      I thought the same thing, was it worth it? I have my own view on their psychological motivations but I do wonder that?

      Yes of course, some of us are naive not to realize how close the issue is to the church at the moment.(on both wider and local level) I can think of a few examples in another denomination. (They refer to it as a form of civil disobedience). Back to there is a lot of psychology going on – and its having some affects on the church. As you say, there’s a price at some point..
